My favorite sites included the Albert Memorial (see below), the Serpentine (the large lake), the Italian fountains, and the Garden walk. Every direction you turn you will find something interesting or historical. You will also find gardens galore with a surprisingly beautiful selection of flowers. Finally, you will see people relaxing, rollerblading, kissing, talking and generally just having a good time.
Take your time and walk around the park. End up in the Southeast corner and walk through Wellington's Arch into Green Park (next to Buckingham Palace) if you want even more gardens and park space.

It's a place where kids can race around, kick a ball, get some exercise, or adults can take a few minutes to relax, read a book in the sun or have a quiet picnic lunch, whatever you fancy.
What's good is it doesn't cost a thing.
If you are on a sightseeing trek you can use the park as a way to reach the many different attractions in London, but be warned- some of them are quite a distance.
There are street markets located at the Lancaster Gate side of the park during the weekends. The stalls are mostly Arts and Crafts stalls.
Harrods is located at the opposite, Knightsbridge side, Speakers Corner at the Marble Arch corner and Kensington Gardens and Kensington Palace at the High Street Kensington side.
